Noticeboard

Did you know Rushcliffe patients you can access routine appointments in the evenings and weekends.

These appointments are best suited for things that will not need ongoing review by your usual practice.

You can book through the practice reception during opening hours for appointments between 6.30pm and 8pm in the evening on weekdays and between 8.30am and 12.30pm at weekends. If you request one of these appointments, which are outside of usual working hours you will be offered a slot with a Rushcliffe GP, Nurse or Healthcare Assistant at one of three locations across the borough. The location will depend on the day of your appointment.

The additional evening and weekend appointments are available at:

  • East Bridgford Medical Centre
  • Castle Healthcare Practice in West Bridgford 
  • Keyworth Medical Practice

PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL EXTENDED HOURS APPOINTMENTS ARE PREBOOKABLE ONLY BY CONTACTING YOUR OWN PRACTICE

 THERE IS NO WALK IN SERVICE OFFERED. IF YOU REQUIRE URGENT ASSISTANCE BEFORE 8AM OR AFTER 6.30PM, PLEASE CALL 111

Acute Prescriptions

These are issued at the time you see the doctor. They may be for tablets, medicines, creams or sprays and some appliances. The doctor will tell you how to use the prescribed item and usually those instructions are repeated on the bottle.

We use these acute prescriptions when only a short treatment is needed or when we are starting a new treatment. If the medicine doesn't work or upsets you the doctor won't know unless you tell him/her! If the original problem is still troublesome let your doctor know either in writing, by phone or by making a further appointment.
